FC Cincinnati vs. Sounders: Highlights, stats and quotes

Sounders fall 1-0 in first road test of season.

After two impressive home performances, the Seattle Sounders failed to play up to that previous standard in their first road game. A sloppy giveaway led to their first conceded goal of the season and despite playing about 30 minutes (including stoppage time) up a man the Sounders were unable to find the equalizer.

The Sounders did think they tied it up in the 90th minute when Yeimar Gomez Andrade headed in a Jordan Morris cross, but VAR determined that Yeimar committed a foul in the buildup. The Sounders also thought they had a good penalty shout around the 60th minute but replays were inconclusive on whether or not Nick Hagglund handled the ball.

The Sounders will next host LAFC on Saturday.
